Jefferson Modernization - $311,000,000
2020 Bond funds for Jefferson will be used for the complete modernization of Jefferson High School, encompassing master plan, design, construction and occupancy/close-out phases. The Jefferson High School Conceptual Master Plan, completed by the 2017 Bond Program, will be used as the starting point for the Jefferson High School Modernization Master Plan.
Jefferson High School, located in the North Portland Albina neighborhood, is a densely developed 300,000 SF site that has historically served as one of the anchors of the Black community in Portland. The 14 acre site includes the original 1909 structure, later alterations and additions, track, fields, and parking.
The Jefferson High School Modernization project will be the first modernization project of the 2020 Bond Program to move forward and the first to complete, with anticipated initial opening at the start of the 26-27 school year.
More program details will be available in the coming months.
